Loyalty Society 2015 - 2016

Thank you for all you do to help make Drury a better place. Your investment in the lives of current and future students is truly appreciated.

My wife, Stephanie, and I are both Drury graduates, so it is even more fulfilling to be a part of the University at this exciting time.  Since I returned to serve at Drury this summer, I have had the opportunity to visit with a number of students, alumni, parents and friends of the University.  In every encounter, the people I have met have been optimistic and enthusiastic.  It is a great time to be a panther!

We recently welcomed students back to campus for the new academic year, including over 500 new day school students.  I encourage you to visit the Drury website to learn more about the incoming class of 2020; you will be impressed.

As we embrace these new students, it reminds me that the “Drury family” means so much to so many.  We are developing a network of volunteers throughout the world to connect alumni and friends of the University and to enhance opportunities for a wide range of interactions from providing mentoring to current students to organizing alumni activities.  Please let us know if you would like to volunteer.

I look forward to working with you and hope you will share your thoughts and ideas. Drury has a bright future, and with your continued support, it can be even brighter.
